On-site training (Verksamhetsförlagd träning)

One of the general aims of the on-site training component of the programmes is for the student to be given an opportunity to develop a professional approach and identity, and to apply and integrate theoretical knowledge wit practical skills.
Prior to each placement, the programme course coordinator informs the students of the guidelines and goals of the on-site training component of their education.
On-site training is formerly known as clinical education, you may come across it as VFU or VIL.


On-site training components are assessed according to standard assessment criteria established by the programme committee. If you risk failing a clinical course/module, you will be informed of this in writing and orally in good time in order for you to improve your skills in accordance with a personalised action plan. Any agreements reached between you and your teachers are to be put in writing.

To receive a passing grade for on-site training, you must fulfill the intended learning outcomes stated in the course syllabus. Examination procedures varies and questions can be answered by the programme administration.

Attendance, Interrupted on-site training

All on site-training is mandatory. Rules regarding absence can be found in the course syllabus. The examiner may cancel the on-site training if a student shows serious inadequacy in knowledge, skills or approach.
Extracts from the criminal records can be requested for on-site training placements that involve contact with children.


For participation in on-site training you will be registered in the administrative system for on-site training placements called Kliniskt PlaceringsProgram (KliPP) as well as in Stockholm County Council’s electronical catalogue (abbreviated EK).

JoBSH course and eTjänstekort

All students participating in any form of on-site training for Stockholm County Council (Region Stockholm) must undergo the compulsory online course JoBSH which covers handling of medical records, attitudes/treatment in healthcare, confidentiality and hygiene. When you have passed the course, the eTjänstekort can be issued. eTjänstekort is an access/ ID-card needed for on-site training within the Stockholm county Council (Region Stockholm), different from the KI-access card, used for example for computer access and access to the facilities during your on-site training. The e-tjänstekort issued to students without a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer) is a temporary card without a photo, valid for six months (it can be prolonged if needed). 

Exchange student without a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer), you should get in touch with the on-site training coordinator at the programme regarding the JoBSH course, and contact the international coordinator for the application of eTjänstekort.

Make sure to have the e-tjänstekort ready for your first day on your on-site training! 

Students with protected personal data should contact the study counsellor or equivalent regarding eTjänstekort.

If you already have eTjänstekort it is not necessary to get a new card but you must complete the JoBSH course and be able to confirm it with a certificate.
